The JDK Sandbox Development repository has also been created. As usual
it’s default branch will be keep updated ( automatically ) with the changesets
from the Main line.  -- Sandbox development

The JDK 10 Sandbox [1] has been made read-only. Branch owners should
move their respective accumulated changes to the new sandbox. Depending
on the scope and area of work, collapsing the changes into a single patch /
webrev [2], and shuffling that patch [3], is one way to achieve this. This is
what was done already for the http-client-branch.
